As its name suggests, this lamp's surface is covered with shimmering capiz shells that give it a glamorous, yet relaxed coastal vibe. The subtly textured surface is a delight when light reflects off of it, creating an ethereal quality. Furthermore, the lamp's striking silhouette and polished nickel base, neck, and final work well in modern spaces. This lamp is finished with a crisp, natural linen tapered shade that ensconces a recommended 150-watt bulb and 3-way turn knob. The lamp is powered by a generously long 6-foot clear cord.
